Did you read my example in this post?

Phillip asked if it was ok for an abortion when the person was raped. He gave an example. I gave another example of the same situation, diffently worded. I think it was a relativly good example.

"In some cases, the psychological damage of a mother giving birth to the son of a rapist, or a daughter knowing that she is the illegitamate child of her mother and her grandfather, might outweigh the pain of aborting the pre-fetus."

I know what you are saying, but I disagree. The woman should put up the baby for adoption. I know that sounds like the answer to all abortion questions, but it is for a good reason. There may be some psychological damage, but I think the damage has already been done, giving birth would not add on much. About the daughter knowing she is illegitamate, I have a friend who is an illegitamate child. Yes, I believe it may hurt him, but he is definintally glad he was born.
